The 3 Free Apps That Are Important Than University Degrees

The 3 Free Apps That Are Important Than University Degrees

November 12, 2019 59 By Stanley Isaacs


I finished high school in the year 2004 at
the age of 17 and the next thing was to get to the university. Being the great student I was, I wanted to
go to one of the best universities in my country but my family members won’t let me. Some said that I was not good enough. Others said since I was a sickly boy, traveling
a long distance away from home could be dangerous. Anyways, I ended up in a polytechnic but after
3 years in the polytechnic, I decided that I was never going to continue with anything
call schooling, even though everyone I know hates that idea because, in my country, a
degree is a god. But in today’s video, I’m going to be sharing
with you something better and more valuable than degrees and none of them is a secret. If you’re new here, consider subscribing so
that you won’t miss other interesting videos like this. Why is university so overrated? Almost everywhere in the world, schools and
universities are overrated, not because these institutions give education, yes, it’s not
because of education, but because of the degrees. Let’s get this right. The honor and worship school gets isn’t because
it’s the source of education, instead it’s because that’s the place that has been accredited
to issue the decorated paper called certificate. If you argue with this assumption, I’ll ask
you to close your eye and imagine that schools and universities stop giving certificates
or degrees. What do you think will happen if you’re asked
to go to a university but there wouldn’t be any degree, after all, education is what you
need, right? Since education is what you need and it doesn’t
live inside a paper, why can’t you go to a university and get that education without
having any paper to show for it? Now you can see what I’m talking about; nobody
would go to university if the university doesn’t give degrees. So, the only reason why the university is
overrated is because of its degrees. Period! Now, is degree important? Yes, for a few percent of us, maybe for 5
or 10% of people. If you want to be a medical doctor, a lawyer
or anything like that, yes, the degree is important. But for most of us, education, not degree
is the most important thing. Imagine you want to be a computer engineer,
a software engineer, a writer, a musician, a salesperson, a journalist, an inventor,
scientists or an entrepreneur. Yes, many people and organizations will never
give you a chance to do any of the above work (except entrepreneurship) without a degree
but it’s because those organizations are dumb or deceived by the school. Nobody needs a degree to be a salesperson,
nobody needs a degree to be an inventor, nobody needs a degree to be a musician, writer or
even scientist, journalist, yes CNN may never employ you without a degree but that will
show how dumb they are because journalism like every other thing is a skill. All you need to be a good journalist is education
and practice. Why do we think that the university is the
best or only place to get an education? Yes, if you don’t have a degree as an inventor
or a scientist, the science community will not recognize you today because we’re dumb. We’re dumb to have thought that degree is
what makes someone a scientist while the forefathers of science had no degrees. Curiosity, curiosity, curiosity is the mother
of education, skills and human progress. Now that I’ve made it clear that this video
is not for everyone, let me speak to many people out there whose need is education and
not degree. Google
Everybody knows it and everybody uses it but do you understand and appreciate what Google
means? You see, when I was growing up in my little
town, I would go to the cyber café to buy cheap browsing time which would be overnight
because there was no internet as common as we have it today. I would be in the cyber café all night simply
reading from Google. It was gold for me and I appreciate it. Now let me ask you; what is the foundation
of education? Very simple! The foundation of education is not the uniform
we wear to school none is it the test or even degrees. The foundation of education is information. Period! If I can get enough information about any
field, be it law, medicine, accounting or entrepreneurship, I can get an education in
that field. Google gives you information without you having
to pay an unreasonable amount of money to get it. Google literarily changed my life because,
through that simple app, I’ve been able to learn valuable things that have been the reason
for my success. I know you have a Google app or browser on
your phone. What I don’t know is whether you’re using
it to get education or entertainment. Believe me, Google search gives to all of
us what no university can give us. YouTube
Whenever I tell people that I don’t like social media, they are quick to remind me that YouTube
is a social media but I don’t get it. What is the definition of social media? Is anything social media because we define
it as such? To me, YouTube is a university and even better
than any university. This is what happens. YouTube has a crazy Algolrithim which studies
what you consume on YouTube. If for instance, you come to YouTube every
day to watch cat videos, YouTube will give you more cat and dog videos. If you consume entertainment, news, and games
on YouTube, you’ll get to see more of such things. But let’s say you consume educational videos
in any field, science, art, history or entrepreneurship, then, whenever you log in to your YouTube
app, you’ll see more and more videos in that field. This way, YouTube becomes one of the most
valuable libraries in the world Podcast
Many years ago, I read or heard Brian Tracy saying something like: If you listen to audio
training programs in your car, you can consume the equivalent of the university degree information
in 2 years. Fortunately for us, we don’t have to be in
the car to listening to podcasts anymore. With a simple app on your phone, you can learn
wonderful things that can change your life. Do I honestly think that the three apps mentioned
in this video are more valuable than a university degree? To answer your question, I’ll like to ask
you; what is education? To me, education is about information and
practice. If I can get information about any field,
I can practice and improve my skills and if I can practice, I can do anything in any field. If you agree with me that information is the
foundation of education, then, you should agree with me that information has been democratic. If in the 21st century you think that you
need to go to a university to learn how to be a salesperson, hoe to be a writer, how
to be a software engineer, an inventor or an entrepreneur, well, I don’t know what you
know. The reason for this video
Because the school has become a god in our world today, whenever anyone seems to be speaking
against the school, such a person should be expecting several attacks. I’m a gentle person and I don’t have the strength
for your weapon so save it. This video is not to speak against the school
or your degrees. If you think you need degrees, you need it. If you think you can get all the education
you need using the internet, you’re right. If you like this video and you want to subscribe
